The FluidVis 3D visualization system, supported by CCV, has been used for teaching, research, and outreach activities in our facility.

Teaching: FluidVis demos for students, including the summer @ brown program. UTRA students working in the Creton lab have used the system to visualize the zebrafish brain.

Research: This system is now used by various confocal microscopists. Dr. Creton submitted a R01 application that includes 3D visualization with FluidVis.

Outreach: The Fluidvis system has been a valuable tool in various outreach activities. The Leduc Bioimaging facility is regularly visited by local high schools (e.g. Wheeler) and the 3D visualization is always the highlight of the tour.
